Featuring Forte's Holiday Chocolate Truffles 2019

For your truffle gifts this holiday season of 2019, we are excited and honored to be featuring the award-winning chocolate truffle box of Master Chocolatier Karen Neugebauer from Forte Chocolates.

Sea Salt Caramel in Milk Chocolate – WORLD GOLD, International Chocolate Awards 2018
Pumpkin Spice – WORLD GOLD, International Chocolate Awards 2018
Rosemary Orange Caramel – WORLD GOLD, International Chocolate Awards 2018
Lemon Pepper in White Chocolate – GOLD, NW Chocolate Festival Awards 2018
Marcona Almond in Milk Chocolate – GOLD, NW Chocolate Festival Awards 2018
Sea Salt Caramel in Dark Chocolate – GOLD, NW Chocolate Festival Awards 2018

These truffles are a perfect gift for anyone who likes fine foods. Every flavor in this box has won an award in at least one chocolate competition, domestically or internationally. Karen is one of the top ten most decorated chocolatiers in the world, and the quality of the truffles and the flavors prove it.

Many of our customers we see only once a year - for the annual holiday Intrigue Chocolate Truffle Box. Due to construction and the changing city landscape of Seattle, we no longer have access to a facility that can produce those truffles. Earlier this year we sunset our ganache truffles. Though we hope to eventually bring them back, for 2019 we wanted to offer an alternative to our loyal fans - so we worked with our sister company Forte Chocolates to do so.

Intrigue Chocolate and Forte have a long history together. We both focus on exploring and developing flavor through the medium of chocolate, are hyper vigilant about sanitation and process, and we share our expertise with each other. If you didn’t know, Intrigue Chocolate prepares all of Forte’s cocoa mix cans in our kitchen, and in exchange Karen and her team form our spiced bars in their facility. They are experts in the art of tempering. If you like honey in your chocolate bar - one of the most difficult ingredients to work with - then you want this team to make it happen.

You can pick up a box in our retail stores (Pioneer Square and Capitol Hill), and we can ship boxes to you or someone else by ordering Online.
